Full of the Holy Spirit

RE Verse reading–Acts 4:36-37, 11:19-26, 15:36-40 (day three)  “For he was a good man, and full of the Holy Spirit and of faith” (11:24)  The Greek word pleres meant “full”.  It described a vessel filled to the top, a surface covered in every part, or a soul completely permeated.  The Bible says that we must be filled with the Spirit of God.  There will be no power otherwise.  Luke 4:1 says that Jesus was “full (pleres) of the Holy Spirit”.  Acts 2:4 says “they were filled (pleres) with the Holy Spirit”.  Acts 11:24 says that Barnabus was a good man as a consequence of being filled (pleres) by/with the Holy Spirit and faith.  this past Sunday I showed the children a glass.  To be filled, the glasss had to have only one thing and that one thing had to have all of it.  The human heart does not have the luxury of loving two things at once.  We must be filled.  All of us. Only Him.
